Home Automation Protocols

2 May, 2011 - 2 minutes
In my previous post, I mentioned some of the issues I was experiencing with my current choice of home automation protocol, xPL. The primary issue was the need to perform filtering for every message on every client due to the use of broadcasts for messaging. One way to avoid this is to use a pub/sub messaging system instead. A number of people that I respect have been using the MQTT Protocol so I thought I’d take a better look at it.
